The message of tears to joy in verses 5 and 6 resonated with me because I've experienced that very thing. There have been so many times over the years where I've found myself in a difficult situation that, at the time, is heavy and miserable, but weeks, months and in a some cases even years later, it's resolved and I can look back and see how God guided and supported me through the situation with the end result being a stronger and more joyful me.
How has God restored you from tears to joy in the past? What encouragement do you draw from this passage, especially if youâ€™re in a place of "sowing tears" right now? Tami
